(TibetanReview.net, Mar25, 2015) – China and India concluded in the latter’s capital New Delhi their 18th special representative talks on the boundary issue on Mar 23 with no breakthrough of any kind. The two sides simply agreed to properly handle and control their disputes and jointly safeguard peace and tranquility in their border regions before the boundary issue is solved, according to China’s official Xinhua news agency Mar 23.
The report said Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi and Indian National Security Advisor Ajit Doval exchanged in depth their opinions on the boundary issue, and made strategic communications on bilateral ties as well as international and regional issues of mutual interest.
Yang arrived in New Delhi on Mar 22 for a three-day visit, including two days for the border discussion.
China and India never shared any territorial boundary until the former annexed Tibet in 1959 and refused to recognize the historically observed or accepted Indo-Tibetan borders. India recognized Tibet as an autonomous region of China in a 1954, 10-year trade agreement.
